His name is Rusty, but his skills aren't

RICK MACDONNELL, Snowseekers Inc.

A little more than a week ago, the SnowSeekers "road dogs" were in Fairmont, British Columbia, where we visited the Fairmont Hot Springs, as well as the Family Ski Hill that's just minutes from the resort. You can read all about the trip  here.

As you more than likely know, for every destination we visit, we profile not just the on-hill and off-hill activities, but resort destinations and dining opportunities. On this particular trip we were fortunate enough to be taken care of by Rusty Cox, the Farimont's Chef de Cuisine. We soon found out that in addition to being an incredibly cool guy and an absolutely dynamite chef, he is also a world-renowned ice sculptor.

Rusty sent me this photos a few days ago, and I just couldn't keep them to myself. They absolutely blew me away. There's a reason why he travels the world doing this stuff.


Probably my favourite. Amazing stuff.
I should email this one to Peter Jackson.
Yes, the entire bar (and the walls surrounding it) is ice.
